Annual Event Took Place in Riyadh, Jeddah and Khobar of Saudi Arabia
Building on the success of the first “Prescriptive to Performance based specifications” (P2P) seminars, Saudi Readymix and organizing partners set off and conducted the 2nd annual P2P seminars. The first P2P took place in Khobar, Riyadh and Jeddah and second annual followed suit.
The first P2P attracted more than 500 key stakeholders in the concrete and construction industries. The success of the seminar came as no surprise for it was organized by ten globally recognized industry leaders and supported by five highly knowledgeable technical institutions. This year’s P2P delivered even more.
Several local and international speakers presented on the environmental and financial benefits of performance based specifications covering the latest global trends. Simply put, prescriptive specifications define the components of the concrete and its method-of-placement. On the other hand, performance specifications define the results; describing the required quality characteristics of the end product, leaving the details about materials selection, proportioning, delivery and placing to the supplier.
